On Management

Issue 5 of the open access PARSE Journal of Valand Academy of the University of Gothenburg has just gone online (click here to access the webpage). As always, it comprises an interesting range of texts, this time on ideas and practices related to management in the arts – both on individual and institutional levels.

PARSE # 5

I am currently working on proofing issue # 5 of the PARSE Journal, published by the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. The topic for this issue is Management. Editors this time are Erling Björgvinsson, Henric Benesch and Andrea Phillips. The two previous issues I worked on, on Repetition and Reneges and Time(s), were very interesting and I shall be looking forward to this one in particular given I teach on an MA in Arts Policy & Management myself. More details to follow shortly.
